These donations will be used to renovate 5 one-bedroon units at our Catalyst Apartments which were recently purchased in Salinas.These 5 units in a free-standing building were built as a joint project with the Housing Authority of Monterey County and share a campus with another 12 units owned by Interim, Inc. This permanent affordable-housing will be remodeled, re-roofed and will include energy efficient windows and doors and new bathrooms, kitchen and flooring throughout.
The MCGives! campaign runs through midnight Dec. 31.
By making a donation to Interim’s Big Idea, a donation will be matched by MCGives!
MCGives! generates a matching fund to encourage more giving. Each nonprofit will receive their prorated share of the match based on total funds earmarked for their group by the donors. MCGives! provides the prorated match on the first $75,000 an organization raises in MCGives!, to ensure the overall match fund is shared most equitably among all participating nonprofits. For every dollar raised during last year’s MCGives! campaign, the match was approximately 12% for participating organizations.
Last year more than $4.8 million was donated during the six-week campaign, from over 4,700 donors, bringing the total raised and donated to over $16 million since the Weekly’s Community Fund was established.
